Nice location, clean rooms, but do NOT bring children here. The owners blamed my kids for breaking a decorative glass item in a public area.They told me that it was a very expensive piece AND rare and not only asked me to clean it up (I did not pack a broom) but asked me to pay for it.

benefit tourists but provide ongoing employment for the locals as well.
So when you consider that number of yachts and the revenue
derived why are there no pump out facilities, environmentally safe refuelling
docks, mooring buoys to prevent anchor damage to sea grass etc? All yachts must
have holding tanks before they are permitted to visit but there is nowhere to
pump them out. So all you are doing ...
... trying to move in and occupy the cockpit of the yacht! Maureen came back on one occasion to find they had breached our defences and two full grown females had occupied the cockpit. They didn't take too kindly to being evicted either and the smell and excrement was overpowering. Interesting and cute to watch but not to co habit with. We were warned when we arrived but we didn't count on their ingenuity. You were spot on John.
